Vulnerability Insight:
NBD is a protocol for accessing block devices (hard disks and
disk-like things) over the network.

nbdkit is a toolkit for creating NBD servers.

The key features are:

* Multithreaded NBD server written in C with good performance.

* Minimal dependencies for the basic server.

* Liberal license (BSD) allows nbdkit to be linked to proprietary
libraries or included in proprietary code.

* Well-documented, simple plugin API with a stable ABI guarantee.
Lets you to export 'unconventional' block devices easily.

* You can write plugins in C or many other languages.

* Filters can be stacked in front of plugins to transform the output.

In Fedora, ', nbdkit', is a meta-package which pulls in the core server
and a useful subset of plugins and filters.

If you want just the server, install ', nbdkit-server', .

To develop plugins, install the ', nbdkit-devel', package and start by
reading the nbdkit(1) and nbdkit-plugin(3) manual pages.

Affected Software/OS:
'nbdkit' package(s) on Fedora 31.
